What To Watch This Weekend: Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Smite, And Hearthstone


This week, as several ongoing major esports tournaments vye for our attention, we bid farewell to one of the greatest competitive games in recent history.

Though Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite is just days away, we still have at least one major Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 tournament this weekend: The Curleh Finale. Throughout the year several tournaments have acted as qualifiers for this event, meaning everyone here is among the best of the best. This should make for a fantastic send-off to one the longest-running competitive fighting games of the modern age. (Stream and Schedule)

This week's big Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament is the ESL One New York, which will have teams facing off in the Big Apples for their share of $250,000. (Stream / Schedule)

The event will also host the Street Fighter V Brooklyn Beatdown, which invites top players to compete on the same stage for a shot at a first-place prize of $20,000. (Stream / Schedule)

For more fighting game action, make sure to watch the OZHadou Nationals, which will also have tournaments for Tekken 7, Injustice 2, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, and more. (Stream / Schedule)
